About
The Who
NATURAL INSECT CONTROL (NIC) has been supplying top quality solutions for natural pest control since 1989. Long before words like ‘bio-dynamic’ and ‘sustainability’ where part of our vocabulary, Sandra and David Mitchell were thinking ‘green’ and ‘natural’. Starting at their kitchen table, packaging Lady Bugs for friends and then clients to solve their Aphid problems was the foundation of NIC. With that beginning and that thinking, they quickly became trail blazers and champions to the cause of “Alternatives to Chemicals”.
The heart of that very concept, to choose to make a difference and to choose natural solutions is the same as it was decades ago for Sandra and Dave and now siblings, John and Susan NIC’s present owners, because “we believe in the vision our mother had.”
The What
NATURAL INSECT CONTROL (NIC), your Organic, Environment Friendly Product Supplier. We specialize in beneficial insects, biological pest controls, Canadian beneficial nematodes, greenhouse biological controls, ladybugs, praying mantis, natural fly parasites and many more. Birds are great natural pest controllers; enjoy attracting and watching purple martins, hummingbirds, orioles, bluebirds, bats, chickadees and many more native birds in your own backyard with your own bird feeders and houses and no mosquitoes.
About
About
The How
Nature naturally keeps a balance, only when forced by ‘humans’ do things go wrong and result in unwanted invasions. All of the ‘Good Bugs’ we offer are either native to North America or have been approved and permitted by Agriculture Canada for Natural Insect Controls. The amount of ‘Good bugs’ released for natural pest controls is only a fraction of what is already working hard outside in nature.
The Why
We feel that people are now, more than ever, looking for alternatives to chemicals. People everywhere are aware of the damage done to the environment by pesticides and are looking for safe, family friendly alternatives. Products like beneficial insects and nematodes, birdhouses and feeders, and non-chemical traps and lures, all of which can be used to create a sustainable environment conducive to a healthier planet. NIC will supply you with the products your customers are looking for. We are ready to grow with you and develop our businesses for a more sustainable future.
